I just want to back to the old days where there was longer dropouts now if your wheel isn't slammed.. It's basically hanging off the dropouts it's so annoying to look at. Maybe like 3 or 4 minutes on a good day.

Is your sprocket a bit off so you have tight spots and loose spots?

I don't ride a BMX bike to look cool to others, I do it because it's fun and never do I think "Boy I sure am cool on my BMX bike."

haha i feel that some frames mixed with some hubs do better at that. My Federal is AMAZING for it, i swear my chain never comes loose. i can set it just right too lol. But it would still be nice to have integrated chain tensioners just because haha

Put bike upside down.
Grab wheel.
Put feet on seat.
Pull.
Tighten.

I dont do this anymore because when i tighten my hub it somehow auto tightens my chain to almost perfect everytime but i used to do this.

Close somehow without trying. I run a full link too.
The reason it tightens isnt because of it being close though as i tighten the bolt it slowly gets tighter until i stop tightening.

-pull wheel back
-hold wheel against non driveside stays
-tighten non driveside nut
-center wheel in the rear end
-tighten driveside
If you have done it correctly, it should result in perfect chain tension
2 minutes tops

Before I traded my 2008 Fit Team Street frame away for a 2012 Kink Liberty frame, the old dropouts were like half and inch or a bit longer. I would always jam my crescent wrench in between the tire and seatstay bridge to tighten the wheel real nice. Now, the dropouts on my current frame are like an inch and a half max and the gap between my tire and the seatstay bridge is like almost 2 inches even with a 2.25 tire. I had to stick something fat to get my wheel to tighten decently.

Two seconds,

Loosen both sides,

1. Push the wheel to the right (non drive side)

2. Tighten it...

3. Push the wheel to the left side, which then tightens the chain.

4. Tighten it

Done.
